, 36 years old, she came the a mayor of a city outside mexico city in 2008 because nobody else would. she stepped down last year to run for congress so she could continue to fight the cartels. she lost that election. she has been missing for two weeks and now her body has been found along a desolate road. the cause of death was a blow to the head. but her legs and hands were bound. she had been stabbed and there were clear signs of torture. this was the third time she was attacked by drug gangs. in 2009 she and her husband came under fire. she survived. her husband was killed. a year later a van she was riding in was riddled with 30 bullets, three of them struck her and the scars were so bad on her body she published the pictures to show how brutal the cartels were. she was the mother of three young children and that's why she pressed on saying and i'm quoting here, it is not possible for me to surrender when i have three children whom i have to educate by setting an example and she was a true example. the mexican authorities are investigating this murder but admittedly they solve ve
with new york city voters, a full 89% approved of governor christie's performance but new york city as anyone who lives there would be so happy to tell you is not new jersey. so i hope you enjoyed the segment, but to be honest, it was a bit of guesswork on our part, a theory, a hypothesis. if i were to give it a grade, it would have to be incomplete. tonight i can complete at least part of that segment. today a national research poll of new jersey voters found christie's approval is at a record high. governor christie's approval rating between 50 and 59% for three years in office. national research said. now 77% of new jersey voters approve of governor christie. that's a 21-point increase from a poll conducted a month ago. 94% approve of governor christie's handling of the hurricane sandy recovery effort. 91% of the approve of the way the governor and president obama worked together in the aftermath of the storm, and that poll by the way not alone. a rutgers poll that came out found christie's favorability at 67%. up 19 percentage points, 19 since october. and christie is getting gr
of washington during the entire war and went down to city point, grant's headquarters on the james river and then was present, basically, for the fall of petersburg and then the conquest of richmond, the capture of richmond and then famously went to richmond with his son and walked through the streets of the city the day after the city had fallen. and it was all very dramatic and very cinematic and i was certain that was going to be what attracted steven the most. but when i sent him this massive sort of phone book-sized script, it was the january stuff he immediately glomed on to. >> it's this amazing kind of hand-to-hand combat just to get enough votes to pass this. >> yeah. >> what did you learn about lincoln in writing this? because i think one of the things i think is great about him, he sort of captures lincoln's essential weirdness. >> right. >> it's this thing that comes up time and time again that you never quite see really nailed. he's such an odd figure. what else do you feel you learned about lincoln in the context of writing this? >> i was really happy that you said that aft
to theidely followed s&p case/schiller home price index. the survey tracks 20 metropolitan cities, and shows home prices were up 3% year over year in september. compared to august, prices inched up three-tenths percent higher. together, analysts say the numbers add up to a long recovery for housing. >> the housing market has clearly turned the corner and is well on its way to recovery. it's going to be a slow, steady, recovery rather than a booming, explosive recovery, because we still have a few years of distressed inventory we have to work through and some headwinds in the lending market. >> tom: nationally, prices are back to their mid-2003 levels. but they're still down 30% from the peak of the housing bubble. >> susie: last summer's drought fried much of the nation's corn crop, but it didn't scorch interest in owning farmland. in many parts of the corn belt, farmland values jumped 13% over the past three months, according to the chicago federal reserve bank. as diane eastabrook reports, a growing number of investors from pension funds to mutual funds are making farms a hot commodity. >>
and its aftermath. it has been a very challenging time for new york city. i think you have shown quite a bit of fortitude in coming back and getting back to business. my remarks today are going to focus on the reasons for the disappointingly slow pace of economic recovery in the united states, and the policy actions that have been taken by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated when i spoke here last, three years ago. indeed, since the recession trough in 2009, growth in real gdp has averaged only a little more than 2% per year. similarly, the job market has improved over the past three
